ISS035-E-006230 (20 March 2013) --- Expedition 35 Commander Chris Hadfield in Harmony Node 2 aboard the Earth-orbiting International Space Station examines his work after reassembling the amine swing bed into its locker chassis. This device examines whether a vacuum-regenerated amine system can effectively remove carbon dioxide from the space station atmosphere using a smaller, more efficient vacuum regeneration system. The goal is to recover carbon dioxide from the atmosphere, and separate the dioxide from the carbon, so that the oxygen molecules can be used for crew life support.
